it's really, really simple, and all i'm doing is making header files then
cut/paste wrapping junk around them.  it would be even faster if we had
IDL (interface definition language) files and the parsing code / stub
functions were created automatically.

no, it will not.  do you really want every joe-company to produce their
own registry tools; NT-compatible Primary Domain Controller etc?  not
least because this is still immature code and if i get it wrong you can
take down an NT box real quick....
